Words for Good is excited to announce a new partnership with Franklin College, an undergraduate liberal arts institution just south of downtown Indianapolis. Founded in 1834 and Indiana’s first educational institution to admit women, Franklin College offers 28 majors, 36 minors, and eight pre-professional programs to its approximately 1,000 students. Its campus spans 207 acres, including athletic fields and a 31-acre biology woodland. Franklin College is one of 50 small businesses, health care facilities, institutions for higher education and nonprofit agencies awarded an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) from the Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED). More than 15% of Franklin College students graduate with a degree in the sciences, and over the past two years biodiesel research and use at Franklin College has particularly progressed. Using waste cooking oil from the campus cafeteria, students have successfully produced a high quality biodiesel product, spurning an interest in experimenting with other sources for biofuel. Words for Good and Franklin College will be working together to secure funding for future campus green initiatives, including support for energy efficiency research through the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health.
